(PRWEB) September 23, 2004
Cable MSOs are beginning to reap the rewards of their five-year, $56 bil. investment to upgrade their networks into multichannel TVÂs most robust, versatile platform.
Digital and high-speed-data revenue streams are well-established, and burgeoning services such as VoIP, VOD, SVOD, HDTV bundles, commercial services, DVRs, online gaming and home networking are in the early stages of development.
What are the potential returns for these services and how will they impact public and private market values in the cable TV space?
At the upcoming Kagan Cable MSO Summit the issues foremost on the minds of top executives from leading U.S. cable operators will take center stage, including cable TV values, finance and operations. This executive forum will feature an unprecedented array of executives -- from Comcast, TimeWarner, Insight, Mediacom, Rogers, Charter, Susquehanna,Vista III Media, Galaxy/Anchor Pacific and General Communications, plus top executives from leading financial and technology companies.
